Many places in the Bible, we see that God is saying “I will give”. In Revelation 2:10, Jesus says, “I will give you a crown of life, for those who are faithful unto death.”
We live in a world that seeks to live – live a long life as is evident from the advances in medicine and technologies that prolong life. But the Bible teaches us that he who seeks to save his life shall lose it but whoever loses his life for Jesus’ sake shall find it (Matthew 16:25). Not only will the one who fears none and is faithful unto death for Jesus find life, life eternal, but he/she will be crowned – crowned with a crown of life that is everlasting.
Points to ponder:
We must die to self and sin so that our bodies are living sacrifices, presentable and acceptable unto God, which is our spiritual act of worship (Romans 12:1-2). Jesus said, I will give you a crown of life, but it is for those who fear none and are faithful unto death. Are you/Am I?
Revelation 2:10 (KJV)
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
